I’m making it official…I am back from my blogging hiatus…again!! It’s not that I haven’t thought about my blog almost daily, it is just that I have been too busy surviving this crazy life to write about it! That, and basketball season, a new job and life in general, has had me distracted! So, here we go…bear with me as I get back in the saddle and remember how this thing works!!
I have had this blog 2 years now and can honestly say that its really difficult to blog consistently when I have my paying job and life to live at the same time! But…I love it so much! SO, my promise to myself, 3 months into this year…BLOG! And do it as consistently as possible!
It is truly amazing what a weekend of sunshine can do for you! As we enter back into our cold, gray world after a weekend excursion to a volleyball tournament at Myrtle Beach I am energized and feeling hopeful and determined in my spiritual life, our home, my physical fitness, everything!!! I’m ready to kick start this spring and new year! Yes, I know its March…and my first blog post of 2019…I’m a little behind but that’s ok, the sun is FINALLY shining!
Let’s talk about some GOALS for this new season! Since I missed resolution season and I always screw those up anyway….lets just go with GOALS:
- Say YES to God! Focus less of my life and more on the lives of those around me, whether its holding a door and giving a smile in an everyday activity or finding ways to make this life better for a friend or complete stranger my answer will be YES in faithfulness!
- Gain control over my home and calm the chaos! Last year I started out on a real roll! I organized and cleaned and truly started the year out in a place of joy and renewal in our tiny home…and then Team Gunter had some life-changing events over the summer that ushered my blogging hiatus and turned our home upside down – literally and figuratively! I have not been able to gain control since but I am determined! SO, pray along with me; I am a pretty sucky Proverbs 31 woman but I’m gonna start working on it!
- Love this life we have been given and show gratitude for every moment of it! I all too often find myself in a pity party for things in life that I am not exactly happy about…without even noticing how ridiculous that is (see Goal #1). We have so much to be thankful for and its time to start showing it!
